Collegiate Hippy: Topshop Picks

The word hippie used to strike fear into my heart. Just because I live on the West Coast doesn't mean I make my own granola okay? I have flirted with the idea of Birkenstocks before, even buying a pair one day after work while I was weak with hunger. Such are the dangers of low carbing. Collegiate hippie is more about balancing casual elements like tartan and rugged hiking boots with a draped flowy skirt and  throwing some preppy pieces in the mix. Pair a simple black dress with a tartan cross-body bag and 70s style tweed jacket.

Mmm burger bed

In fashion, home decor and accessories, I always wish I was attracted to sleek, minimalist things. A simple leather biker jacket, a long grey cashmere cardigan, a simple bed with clean lines that looks both modern and streamlined. Unfortunately I am not this person. I naturally gravitate towards loud prints, bright colours, stripes, polka dots, peter pan collars and things that most people would find nauseatingly cutesy. Empire waists, donut shaped change purse and patent black Mary Janes? Yes please! Mature clothing to suit my age? Oh no I couldn't possibly.

So when I saw this burger bed, my first thought wasn't "Oh how childish and juvenile!". I wanted to get inside this bed and make it my own. I want to rest my head on those lettuce leaf pillows and be warmed by the toasted sesame bun comforter. I am positive that I would get tired of having such a bed in my main bedroom area but maybe in the guest room? 

"Oh yes, put her things in the burger room please - I do hope someone had the decency to air out the padded cheese layer."

Erin Wasson is derelicte

One of my favourite quotes from Erin Wasson:
"When I go down to Venice Beach and I see the homeless, like, I'm like 'Oh my God, they're pulling out, like, crazy looks and they, like, pulled shit out of like garbage cans.'" 

Here is Erin exuding the cool and sexy disheveled vibe she does so welll . Who hasn't always wanted a pair of crotchless jeans?

The perfect chunky Mary Janes

I love these shoes! They are the perfect chunky black heeled Mary Jane style shoes from the new Fall 2010 Chie Mihara. I can see myself stomping around in these in an array of different colored and textured tights. But definitely not with those weird grey ribbed tights in this picture. Hmmm. Which reminds me that I still have a huge box of tights in my friend's shed in London. Oops.
